Here is where the water meets the land, faith meets intellect, leadership meets service, ideas meet action and purpose meets practice. One of the nation’s top Christian liberal arts colleges—located just north of Boston and right near the beach—Gordon College better prepares students for a greater purpose. And as of fall 2021–22, it comes at a more affordable starting point, thanks to a 33% tuition reduction (nearly $13,000). With more than 90 academic programs, including accelerated bachelor’s and master’s opportunities, and a robust career preparation program, you’ll leave Gordon ready for faithful leadership and service.
